Capita SIMS has been helping schools for nearly 30 years. The SIMS management information system is now at the centre of 21,000 schools internationally in over 40 countries. Their award-winning product range enables schools to manage students and staff information across all areas of school life. It provides the information that helps teachers to spot when a child starts to fall behind, to identify and tackle behaviour or attendance issues, to keep parents informed, to efficiently manage finances and to cut administration to a bare minimum.
Safetrax, a leading IoT player in the School Bus Tracking System provides end-to-end tracking of School children – right from boarding of a child from her home to the School and back. Parents are able to track the whereabouts of their wards through the entire school bus trip using Safetrax Parent App available on their iOS or Android phones.
Recently, one of the prestigious schools in New Delhi who use Capita for their School Management and Safetrax for their School Bus Tracking wanted to explore integrating both the systems in order to automate and improve their attendance management systems.
Safetrax was quick to respond to the need and performed the integration along with Capita in no time. This was made possible due to Safetrax’ flat data model and easy to use REST API. As Safetrax is built ground up for scalability and extendibility, it took no time to pair the data fields in the two systems and complete the integration. The school management is now able to track student entry and exit in a single system.
